“GOD IS NOT YOUR CO-PILOT!”

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to HIM, and HE will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV 


Read:  Proverbs 3:1-8

 

“GOD IS MY CO-PILOT” was the bumper sticker plastered on the back window of an old Chevy.  It may seem like a good thing, until you think about it.

We sometimes elevate ourselves to being equal to or above GOD without thinking about it.   At that moment, Satan must be smiling.   When we fail to be submissive to our LORD, Satan is pleased.

Unfortunately, others are misinformed.   Some may think having GOD as a co-pilot would be a good thing.  The problem with our thinking is GOD is not our co-pilot; GOD is our pilot.   HE is always in charge.   GOD is never second in command.

We cannot choose to allow GOD to be in control.   HE is in control.  We can choose to be under HIS control in every facet of our lives.   If you need a bumper sticker, get one that reads: ‘GOD IS MY PILOT, I AM ONLY HIS CO-PILOT’.

Our scripture verse tells us “…in all ways submit to HIM, and HE will make your paths straight.”

 

For thousands of years, GOD has been telling HIS children to submit.   We are still slow learners and HE is still telling us to submit to HIM.

 

Today’s prayer:   “Thank YOU, LORD, for continuing to remind us that YOU are always in charge and that we need to be submitting to YOU.   We can do our best when we follow YOUR instructions.  Amen.”
